I had such a wonderful weekend in Savannah, Georgia with all the wonderful ladies at Petticoats & Parasols! Jenn was such a wonderful hostess, the event was really incredible.
My friend Jennifer from Chicago met me down in Savannah, and we arrived at the Savannah airport, which really is the cutest airport I've ever been to, seriously! We grabbed a cab to the hotel in Savannah, and were immediately welcomed by Jenn and a few other gals.
After unpacking quickly, we ran over to a nearby bar/grill for lunch (we were starving!).
The food wasn't too bad and we were able to relax a bit from the long day of travel (I flew in on a 5am flight from Phoenix!) and get ready for the weekend ahead!
After we had some food in us we took a walk through a few of the squares that make up Savannah. The architecture was so cool to see.
I am standing next to a door to a secret garden...love that!! Well it isn't too secret, the pictures below are what you see through the gates....but still, back in the day can you imagine this being overgrown with greenery, and finding a hidden key, and sneaking in ... this is starting to sound like a book I read somewhere....
The trees too were really neat because they are so different than anything we have in the midwest (that goes for the history as well!).
There were statues in some of the squares of different people.
I love old signage - this is from a theatre downtown Savannah.
I just love the street name "Bull". Wouldn't you love to live on Bull Street? I don't know why, I just think it'd be fun!
After our walking tour of town, we rushed back to the hotel to get ready for the opening night dinner, guest speaker - the amazing Jo Packham, and the SUGAR BAR!
Here is what we walked into...and I am sorry this picture doesn't do the decor justice!
Roselyn-Sue put together a fun and tasty Sugar Bar! Full of candy and treats! Thanks so much Roselyn-Sue, I hope you feel better ASAP!!!
The "real" bar offered a fun peach martini that was a tasty treat too!
Our Guest Speaker was Jo Packham, of Where Women Create fame (and so much more). If you haven't read Where Women Create, first of all where have you been living?!?!, second run out and buy the latest copy ASAP. It is such an inspiring magazine!
Jenn Hayslip was such a wonderful hostess! Jenn I hope you had fun even with all the hard work you did!! Know that we all enjoyed ourselves so much!!
More to share later....Day 2, and Day 3 yet to come!!!
